New Delhi, March 12: One of the fastest rapid transit systems in the NCR, Delhi Metro will expand its new Pink line from March 14. Metro service on the 21.56-km Majlis Park-Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus corridor would be open for public from 6 pm on March 14.
Passenger services on the stretch will begin from 6 PM on the same day from the Majlis Park and Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus stations simultaneously. This section is part of the 59 kilometers long Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar corridor (Pink Line – Line 7) of Delhi Metro’s Phase 3.”
The three interchange stations will connect commuters with Yellow Line (Huda City Centre-Samaypur Badli) at Azadpur, Red Line (Rithala-Dilshad Garden) at Netaji Subhash Place and with Blue Line (Dwarka Sector 21-Noida City Centre) at Rajouri Garden.
Encircling almost the entire Ring Road (Mahatma Gandhi Road), the line, once complete, will be beneficial to a large number of commuters -- especially those living in localities along Ring Road like Punjabi Bagh, Wazirabad and Shalimar Bagh, which are so far unconnected with any direct Metro service going towards south Delhi.
